Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have an error code 99 on my 350d DSLR using a kit lense and a Sigma lense, but not when usings my telephoto, it only happens when there is hih light conditions

Answers :

The lens contacts are dirty. Get a\015\012pencil with an eraser on the end, just a regular old pencil with a rubber\015\012eraser. Detach the lens from the camera, hold it so that the lens’ gold\015\012contacts are pointing down and lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning\015\012them of any hand oil that might have gotten on them.
\015\012\015\012Do the same thing with the gold\015\012contacts inside the camera body. This is a bit harder but it’s do-able: just\015\012hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. Use\015\012a lens cloth and dab at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow\015\012the erasings inside the camera.
\015\012\015\012Do this to each of the three lenses\015\012just to be sure.

To summarize:
1. Turn off the camera.
\015\0122. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
\015\0123. Reattach your lens.
\015\0124. Turn on the camera.
\015\0125. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
\015\012If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.

\015\012If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera should be serviced.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,\015\012please feel free to post them here.

Dark images canon powershot sx100 seems that every pic is dark even with flash and in various light conditions. It seems that the right side of the control dial (where the flash icon is) doesn't allow me to change the flash type as it used too. nothing happens, can't choose red-eye reduction or anything. Any ideas? Has anyone had this problem before? Camera is only a year old so hope it's not broke! thanks for the help.

I have an olympus 'mju' 700 camera which uses li-ion 42b battery and a li-40c charger. Whenever i charge my batteries, the charging light would start flashing (which is not the sign of charging because the light should be still) and when this happens, the battery would not charge. The only way i could make my battery charge was to slot the battery in the charger whilst the power is on (usually, i slot the battery in then turn on the power). But i was using my batteries on a day out, 2 days aft

SSWF Light Hi, I've had my evolt 300 for a little over 3 years and it had been working fine. I charged battery up and went to turn on the camera and there is nothing-it won't come on and (sometimes) the blue sswf light stays on? I just bought a new wide angle lense and it won't come on when I'm using the new lense either. Thanks!

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode. Every once-in-a-while when I went into the "view pictures" mode, the lense would retract itself, but when I tried to take pictures again, the lense would go out and "lense error. restart camera" would appear on the screen. A few weeks ago I finally got my camera fixed at a shop. I got the camera back and used it for about a week, now the same problem is happening. I've

I have a Canon Rebel XSi. I'm trying to shoot a photo of my sleeping 2 year old, so the light is obviously low. I have the cameral on manual mode. I used the light meter to obtain my exposure, but when I push the button to take the picture, nothing happens. On the right side of the light meter, there is a blinking green light when I try to take the picture. What am I doing wrong? I'm out of town and I forgot my camera manual; I think I remember something in there about troubleshooting this parti

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.

Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

A640 Lock-up Hi, The camera was working fine up until today when I took it out of the case, it was stuck, locked-up somehow. I haden't used it in a couple of days (had never had a problem with it before), and now, the only sign of life when pressing the ON/OFF button is the small green light underneeth turns on but nothing else powers up or happens. The only way to get the green light off again is to take the batteries out. Also, the lens is stuck open, and the zoom partially out. What should I

I have a A640 powershot approx two years and has had little use over this period. I took it to a family event recently and took approx 100 photograghs before my lense became stuck. This happened as I was zooming in on one last family shot. I took a closer look at the lense it appears that the first one is sitting at an angle which suggests to me that someing has broken or has slipped out of line to cause it to jam. The camera turns itsel*** after sensing this fault.

Harsh shadows we are trying to take pictures for a friend's small wedding - at the rehearsal today we practiced picture taking with both a Canon Rebel XSI (using both the regular lense and adding a telephoto lense) and a Canon PowerShot S5-IS. The problem is that we are getting a lot of pictures that have a 'hard' shadow on the people in them. It doesn't appear to be a regular shadow because it doesn't 'land' on the different surfaces behind them, but is more like a shadow attached to them. Any

It's your flash.  If you diffuse the light from your flash, you will reduce this problem, but not eliminate it entirely.  You can diffuse it by putting some moist (so it sticks, and also to make it translucent) thin paper across the flash. ... Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

DSC-W200 Frozen My W200 has the lens open (extended) and will not close. Additionally, when I press the power button or the play button on the back, the LCD lights up and says Sony, but nothing else happens. I've tried connecting it to my macbook, using a fully charged battery, memory card vs no card, etc. Nothing seems to work. If I press the power button a seond time, the green power light goes off, but the LCD still says Sony. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not too eager to send it

I have a Polaroid Impulse QPS and it won't turn on anymore. Usually to take photos I open the flash and a little red light comes on next to the button that you press to take a picture.

I have a samsung digimax S600 camera. From not too long back i have been having problems with the image quality of pictures clicked in broad day light in the outdoor. There is no problem, however, indoors whatever the light condition. Also, if i shoot a video using the camera, even on the outdoors, i get satisfactory results (not any different from earlier). What could be the problem? Thanks.

I've owned this camera Nikon F65 for a few years and it was working perfectly, but I haven't used it for the past year or so and now it just stopped working! I put fresh batteries in, lights come on and all functions are displayed ok, but the shutter isn't releasing and it isn't taking any pictures as if all the functions are disabled, no use pressing the shutter as nothing happens. I'd really appreciate your advice on this matter, thanks!
